Thanks! I am trying to build it right. I salvaged the original frame so it needed a lot of blasting. Galvy was 600 and powdercoat was 500. Looking back maybe I should have just bought a new chassis, but I really wanted to have the serial number stamping in case there was ever any questions regarding the originality. Oh and no the powder sticks just fine.

Saw the chassis in person today when I went to go pick up the radius arms. Great job on it so far, looks fantastic! Cant wait to see it come together when you get all the bits and bobs for it sorted out.

Just my thinking, but I would think you'd want vented rotors up front over the solid.
Looks like you are about 5% finished, knowing how much there is ahead of you. Like a house, the framing goes up quick. the rest of it takes forever.

Will they work with the disco calipers?

If the calipers have the spacers, yes. If not you can get the spacers out of a set of RRC fronts. If you need, I can harvest a set from some of Rob's stash. That's what I did on the 109 build.
